I would like to know the process of installing SuSE from "hard disk" or "iso installation". I tried it many a times, but it didnt succeed, it says that the directory does not contain the required images or somethin like this.
I have got the first CD burned and i want to install the remaining from iso's.
I have the 5 iso's in directory in a Fat32 drive. It's D: drive in windows. the folder is named 123.
Now, while installing SuSE, what do i have to tell it ?
I select the drive and when it asks for the folder name, i enter
thats it, and it does not detect it.
Should i enter
Has anybody succeded in doing so ? Or am i going the wrong way ?
The first IDE drive is referred to as /dev/hda. The second partition of this drive will be /dev/hda2. If the partition is an extended partition, however, this same partition will be refered to as /dev/hda5. If your D:\ drive is a second slave drive on the first IDE interface, then it will be /dev/hdb1. If it is the master drive on the second IDE interface, then it will be /dev/hdc1.
If you can boot into the rescue mode of your startup disk, you can use the 'fdisk -l' command to list the partitions and their respective file system types.
The "install from harddisk" option assumes that all the source files you need have been copied to and are available on the local hard drive. If you are installing from CD's, this option would not apply to you. If you've got the CD's, you would just do a regular Installation. -- J.W.
I, too, ran into the same problem. J.W. was exactly right. When you choose to install from hard disk, it cannot be in ISO format. All the files need to be extracted into a folder, which is what I think you have done.
The correct syntax is : /[folder name]
So in your case it would be /123 and that should do it.
Not sure if you figured it out by now, but the posts here definitely helped me.
